Erythrodermic Psoriasis
Scaly erythematous patches with desquamation in large sheets. Secondary infections with pustules makes diagnosis of “Erythrodermic Psoriasis”or “Exfoliative psoriasis”. Miasmatically the sycotic miasm is dominant in this case and psoric manifestations are active.

We need a prescription based on the surface miasm psora, a remedy which covers the dominant miasm sycosis. More over the remedy will be preferable which matches the whole totality and also constitution

First prescription 01/08/06

Psoriasis is an incurable disease as termed by the scientific community, but homoeopathy could break the misconception by application of dynamic, energized pills and eradicate completely. In this case the suitable similimum is a polycrest which covered the entire varieties of prescription adapted by homoeopathic prescriptions. The remedy fits constitution, totality and deeply the miasmatic background of the dynamic noxious influence. The suitable similimum has helped for further recurrences with very low intensity and later no recurrence at all.
